Thank you

You did it! 

We’d like to thank every single one of the 10,000 supporters who got behind this product idea. Your support, votes and the passion shown in your tweets, posts and messages has been inspiring!  As we hand the reigns over to the reviewers, your collective enthusiasm has helped make a New Glenn a Lego set a key step closer to reality.

A project like this comes from a huge combined effort and we want to share our sincere appreciation for everyone behind this project, especially VIP fans like the folks from Team Blue!

As always, the unsung heroes are our family who support us in the untold hours of designing, building, refining, photographing and promoting this project. These include Valerie’s Husband Gilles and Matthew’s Partner Carolyn.

We look forward to keeping in touch with on Twitter Matthew & Valerie and Flicker Here and Facebook: Valerie

Travelling into space is set to become a reality in a whole new way! Blue Origin and their New Glenn will be integral in bringing this to life and in doing so, inspire new generations who’s first step into space could well be building rockets in Lego.

Thank you for helping us build a path to the stars - brick by brick.

It's road trip time…on the Moon!

Thanks to everyone who's given their support so far! 

We’re thrilled to add the Space Exploration Vehicle (SEV) to our product idea.  As profiled by Blue Origin in their recent presentation, Astronauts will use the rover to explore the Moon for up to 2 weeks at a time. 

It’ll be launched inside New Glenn & delivered to the lunar surface atop the Blue Moon lander - which was added in our last update.

Blue Moon Heavy addition

Thanks to everyone who’s supported our New Glenn Rocket on Lego Ideas!

We’re proud to add the heavy-lift human rated version of Blue Moon to our project.

This crewed variant is designed to transport astronauts to and from the lunar surface, utilizing an ascent vehicle that will allow us to return to the Moon.

As a lunar lander it will also be able to deliver large infrastructure payloads, pre-positioned to sites on the Moon for future missions.

1,000 thank you's

Thanks so much to each of you for your support, it means the world to us!  We're especially grateful to the team at Blue Origin, who have generously thrown their support behind this project!

Our journey is only just beginning.  Shortly we’ll be releasing our first addition to the collection, more Blue Origin equipment that hasn't been seen on Lego Ideas before.  We can’t wait to share it with you!

In the meantime, to celebrate such a great start we’re thrilled to share some more photos of this project.

Again, thank you for contributing to the first 1,000.

10,000 here we come!

Valerie & Matthew
